Fore^vord 

Well, Partners, our journey's end approaches. 
We have staked our claim, and now we shall put 
our hard-earned bonanza to work for us. It was 
a long journey, one that taught us much, and one 
that held many intervals of pleasure for us. In 
order that you may remember your prospecting days 
in future years, we present to you a chronicle of 
our adventures together as the Forty-Niners.

We Hit the Trail 



Septembf.r 8, 194S 

Gold! Gold! Gold! The sun was shining hrightl\- as we hit the trail. .Man>- 
tenderfeet who were unaccustomed to our vehicles searched intently for a ladder. 
Wagon .Master Kinder interviewed manv green prospectors who fell out of line, 
and he briefed them on the purpose of our trip. The day became cloud v toward 
noon for some bewildered tra\ellers who were tempted to encamp until the\- found 
their bearings. 

September 30, 1045 

Everyone is now accustomed to our covered wagons, although Trapper Kenney 
has discovered some adventure-seekers slipping behintl the train and trying some 
new trails. 

October 20, 1Q45 

There had been no accidents until today when Phyl D'Entremont's wagon 
wheel fell off, and Nurse English had to repair the damage. 

November 12, 1045 

Our first snowfall detained us for one day. When the sun appeared the next 
morning, everyone wanted to e.xperiment with snowballs, but Wagon Master 
Kinder issued a proclamation that no further time could be wasted, for we must 
continue on our journev to stake our claims. 

December 5, 1045 

We have made very good time since we ha\e had \erv little trouble with the 
Indians. Sharpshooter Fisher has been successful in protecting the train from 
attacks. 

December 2?, 1045 

Everyone is making plans for Ghristmas, and carols are floating throughout 
the wagon train. Ghief Prospector Bair is planning to have a party on Christmas 
Eve while we are encamped. Gold Surveyor Fulton will have charge of the music 
and song feats. 

JANU.ARY 4, 1946 

We have covered 1,945 miles up to date. The X'igilantes, Kupiec and Ball, 
have kept track of the number of hours we ha\e been dela\etl during these months. 
We have added some new members to our trek since we started, and lhi'\ lia\e 
been ama/ed at the spirit which alwa\s prevails.

Rolling Along 

Monday, October 14, 1946 

This morning the weather was fine and pleasant, and we traveled ten miles 
over a rolling prairie country. During one of the stops, David Gibbons skipped 
history class and went buffalo hunting with Sharpshooter Cassano. Gibbons 
ended his da\- with writer's cramp after copying the Constitution of the United 
States. 

Tuesday, October 15, 1946 

Early today as we were following the dusty trail, a displeasing scent arose 
from one of the wagons. After realizing the cause, Fire Chief Gallop and assistant 
Roy Serrentino fumigated the wagon. As one might expect, Fred Sias was experi- 
menting in the chemical laboratory. 

Wednesday, October 16, 1946 

The weather was torrid and dry. As our caravan stretched out across the 
dusty Moulton Desert, a band of Quannapowitt Indians attacked us. Our Barbara 
Walsh quickly drove them away. Her tactics for fighting were >imilar to those 
used in dashing to and from her gym classes. 

Thursday, (^ctobhr 17, l'^46 

Ck'tting a good ^tart, we traveled thirteen miles o\er a sand\ , barren couiUr\-. 
This afternoon a herd of freshmen buffalo galloped by. Wagonhound {Roberts 
shot two stragglers with his spitballs. Since the animals were too \oung and ten- 
der, their hides didn't make very good leather. 

Friday, October IcS, 1946 

We lost eight miles today. 1 lead Coachman, John 1 lerlihy, got so busy with 
his rhetorical that he missed a landmark; consec]uentl>' we found ourselves mired 
in a muddy river bank. .Mthough the underclassmen got in our way, we managed 
to dig our caravan out of the mud. .\fter we had found our trail again, we rolled 
along smoothly.

Encampment 

Saturday, OcroBtK 19, 1946 

We pitched camp for a long stopoxer a few davs ago. Although there are 
many tasks ahead, the boys and girls in our wagon train manage to find some time 
for fun. The first day we camped, Lefavour and Roberto went from wagcjn to 
wagon looking for football material, and Miss Nichols soon had a group of girls 
practicing field hockey in a nearby meadow. 

Thursday, Octobe^r 23, 1946 

We started on the trail again today. Although most of us were sorry to lea\e 
the old water hole, Whiting and Hicks were overjoyed. As soon as we hit cold 
weather, both of them will be enlisting boys for a hockey team. Glynn, too, seems 
to have a gleam in his eye that doesn't come from thoughts of gold, and 1 suspect 
that we shall soon have a basketball team, coached by our most experienced mule 
driver, Lou Colucci. 

Saturday, December 6, 1946 

Most of the girls have gotten over their homesickness for the old water hole, 
and are urging Miss Nichols to help them form a basketball team. Peggy Sias 
and Claire Griffin especially are sharpening their shooting e\es. Our next stop 
will not lack excitement despite cold weather and hard work. 

Tuesday, March 10, 1947 

We have survived the winter months! The sun is pleasantly warm, and we 
are well on our way over the last obstacles in our path. Some of the fellows are 
having a last fiing at sports by playing baseball at every opportunity. Dave Hal- 
lahan, Bill Miller, and Bob Baker held up our start from one encampment when 
they refused to leave an exciting game. The girls, too, have sport fever and are 
breaking out in a rash of activities. 1 suspect that Softball, badminton, and ten- 
nis games are responsible for the late grub we've been having the last lew days. 

Saturday, April 9, 1947 

We're really on our way now! No more stopovers for man\' a dust\' mile. 
Throughout our long and tedious trek towards pa\' dirt, the athletic teams of the 
caravan have given us thrills and entertainment, anti have increased our zeal and 
spirit for the Crystal Lake Trail which lies ahead.

The Gold Dusters 



Throughout our caravan journev'. the stirring music of the band has kept our 
spirits high and our minds intent on the goals ahead. .At all the football games 
their marvelous demonstrations of marching, formations, and musical abilitv have 
thrilled and entertained us. Under the skillful leadership of Mr. banck. the band 
puts on a concert every year, and this annual event is eagerly anticipated and 
\varml>' received. Without the band and its music, our journe\' would ha\'e been 
rough and tedious indeed.

Orchestra 



The orchestra has completed another enjoyable season. These musicians ap- 
peared at the Senior Play, at the Annual Concert in the spring, and ended the 
\ear by playing the graduation music at the commencement exercises in June. i\lr. 
Fanck's sympathetic and capable guidance has made the orchestra a worthwhile 
and an enjoyable school activity.

The Warriors' Trail 

Well, Forty-Niners, our pride in the Wakefield High School football squad 
has been justified. They surely didn't need a team of oxen to pull them through 
this season. Our first win over Danvers, 38 to 0, really started the wagon rolling. 
Then the Woburn palefaces caved in under our Warriors, 13 to 0, who were on 
the warpath. Suddenly came the upset of the season when Watertown was am- 
bushed, but not scalped, 12 to 6. The 7-6 decision of the Melrose game, in Mel- 
rose's favor, was somewhat discouraging as we knew how hard the Warriors played. 
Reading almost weakened, but tied, upon meeting up with our red hot squad. But 
the surprising game, which ended the season, was tied when the "Gloucester f^'ish- 
ermen" met up with W. H. S. A word of praise goes to Mike Roberto and Roy 
Lefavour, our co-captains, and also (Loach "1 lacker" Walsh, Coach Ceddia, Coach 
Colucci, and Coach Crompton, who invariabl\- made our "4Q" squad one to re- 
member.

Our Hot Hoopsters 

The basketball team this year was sparked by several veterans. Led by our 
Gi-captains, Roy Lefavour and Gerry Glynn, the Wakefield Warriors proved to 
be one of the strongest contenders in the Middlesex League. 

Starting out with victories over Danvers, Methuen, and Stoneham, the Wake- 
field Five, under Coach Colucci, pushed after the leading teams. Kirk Moran 
and Louis Sardella could always be depended upon to put the ball into the basket, 
while our scrappy guards, Doug Schumann and Red Porter, made a fine showing 
by keeping the opponents out of our territory. Phil Perrone and Dick Shea kept 
the team "on the ball" by their accurate passing. 

Although the inexperienced second team lost several games, it performed ad- 
mirably. With more games under their belts these players will be in fine trim for 
victory next year.

Hockey Team 



This year Wakefield High School's veteran puck chasers fought their way into 
fourth place, with five teamsters capturing the all-star first team rating, and one, 
the second team. The Kirk-coached learn plaved clean, fast hcKkey and was re- 
garded bj- many sports writers as the best team in the Hastern Massachusetts Hoc- 
key League. The seniors on the team are Co-Captains Warren Whiting and Don- 
ald Hicks, Philip Sousa, William Halloran, John Callan, and Theodore Burns. 
The Kirknien practiced very hard under difficult conditions. They played the 
very best brand of hocke\' with their losses coming by only one goal. Special 
recognition should be given to the co-captains and especialh' to the excellent 
goalie, Donald Halloran.

Baseball, 1948 



The mighty men with the bats swung into action this year with a bang and 
finished second in the league. They worried Belmont by beating them twice in 
exciting 2-1 games, but the latter went on to win the championship. Our team 
had top-notch spirit at all times. Each boy gave a creditable performance as 
is indicated by the record of having won two-thirds of the games plaved. In Jcjhn 
Moore, the team had one of the best pitchers of the league. Pete \Vhiting had a 
pitching record close second to that of Moore's. Warren Cassidy caught for Moore 
and Whiting, in the field were Dick Scanlon at first, Paul Conway at second, 
Alfred Confalone at shortstop, and either Dave Hallahan or Henry Palmerino at 
third. Dave Jackson, Ernie Dill, Joe Rich, John Moore and Pete Whiting alter- 
nated in the outfield.

Cheerleaders 



No oilier schcx)! can hoast such an oulslanding group ol attracti\e girls as 
Wakefield's cheerleaders. Their hard work since the middle of August has trained 
them to be the most unified checrers in the state. Always we will remember their 
pep, energy, and of course their strutting before the bantl. Nor should we forget 
the tireless efforts of head cheerleader, Irene Fazio, and veterans Mileen McCJee 
and Connie Armstrong. The Seniors are Irene Fazio, Mileen McGee, Connie Arm- 
strong, and Alidge Landrw Although Midge is a newcomer, she has worked 
diligently to become one of our outstanding cheerleaders.

Majorettes 



This school year there has been an added attraction at all our football games, 
the Majorettes. The spectators have been thrilled in watching this trim, snappy 
group perform their intricate stunts. The Majorettes had a busy year; for, besides 
having a dance in October, they entertained at one of the Parent-Teacher Associa- 
tion meetings by demonstrating their twirling ability to an appreciative audience. 
A few of the Majorettes also had the privilege of twirling at the Gene Autry Rodeo 
at the Boston Garden. Many parades have been graced with their presence. At 
present, many ambitious candidates are striving for the coveted title of "Major- 
ette."

Girls' Basketball 



Basketball has always been the favorite sport with W akefiekl girls, and this 
year was no exception. Approximately seventy-five girls tried out for the team. 
Their first practice game was on .lanuary 27 with Wilmington. TheN' also ha\e 
played Stoneham and Reading. Although our girls were not champions in the 
actual score outcomes, they were tops in sportsmanship. These girls were allowed 
onl\' two afternoons a week on which to practice, but the\' attended faithfully 
and played extremel\' hard. We shall alwa\s remember our Basketball Warrior- 
ettes of 1949.

Girls' Badminton 



Although girls are sometimes considered inferior to boys as athletes, badmin- 
ton is one sport in which they excel. Afternoons, they have worked determinedly, 
learning the rules and positions for both the single and double games. The girls 
have been taught footwork and also correct serxing and stroking b\' their apt 
Coach, Miss Katherine Nichols. Our female badminton enthusiasts have spent 
much time perfecting their game. But this practicing has not been in \'ain, for 
these girls are first-raters in hitting the birdie over the net.

contested until one girl survived as winner of the tournament. In the spring, Miss 
Nichols held practise sessions for many girls who desired to perfect their tennis 
playing.

Girls' Bowling 



On I'uesday afternoon twenty teams meet at the Sunlite Alleys to bowl. Each

Staking Claims 

Tuesday, Octoblr r 1948 

While crossing one of the particularl\- long stretches of desert, the entire 
wagon train was led astray to Soda Springs by the Good Grooming Group, who 
declared we needed to wash our faces in some fresh water. The Rifle Club also 
took a diverging trail to Castle Rock in search of game, but because Mr. Cassano's 
eyes weren't so sharp as usual, all came back empty-handed. 

Frid.w. November 12. l'-)48 

Under the efficient leadership of cowpuncher fiarle Crompton, the Sports (dub 
was formed to provide more recreation on our du^ty trip and pacify over-anxious 
gold panners. At the same time we reached some mountain ranges where the 
members of the Ski Club enjoyed some fast runs. Shumway didn't get hurt. 

Friday and Saturday. December ^ and 4, 1948 

Friday night part of the caravan put on a play, THE GHOST TRAIN, a 
mystery in three acts. Saturday there was a repeat performance with the result 
that everyone is imitating Dave Gibbons and Bob Hancock, while trying to figure 
out what the sound effects crew did with the train. 



Thursday, December 9, 1948 

Scnorita (Rowing's Spanish (dub swung into their pack saddles and headed 
south of the border into Mexico today. We expect all the Mexicans recei\ed them 
with open arms. Some of the feminine members were a bit lame on their return. 

Wednesday, December 21. 1^)48 

Despite the lack of snow, Christmas was upon us, and was ver\' appropriately 
celebrated. In the e\ening we gathered arounel the camiifire to witness an effecti\e 
tableau of the Christ (Child's manger, with a choral background and dramatic 
narration, and we felt that the IrLie spirit of (Christmas was ours.

dent presides at all homeroom meetings, contacts the Student Council about any 
problems arising in his room, and is responsible for the student activity tickets. 
The managers' duties are to assist in the sales of student activity tickets and in 
procuring funds for charity. .Although these duties are not heavv, the\' are essen- 
tial to a harmonious room. Three cheers for a fme group!

The Student Council 

The 1949 Student Council was certainly a most energetic and successful group 
of students. They sponsored many Canteens which were well attended by the 
students. With the profit gained from these dances the Council bought flowers 
and baskets of fruit to send to the persons who had been ill for a long period. 
They also had some pennants made to sell to the students. These pennants had a 
white drawing of the high school and the white lettering "Wakefield H. S." on a 
red background. These are but a few of the many accomplishments of the Coun- 
cil. The members deserve our congratulations.

Lookout 



Extra! Extra! Read all about it in the Lookout, the W. H. S. school news- 
paper. There are club activities, sports, gossip, and jokes written and collected by 
a capable staff headed by Claire Kolbe, Patricia Morico, Phyllis D'Entremont, 
and faculty adviser, Miss Harriet Dunning. The various articles are assigned, 
and the general revision is done in room 210. There is alvva\'s that struggle against 
the deadline. Then, too there are the last minute news articles to be rushed to 
the Item Office. Oh, yes, the galle\' must be set up, and the finished copies folded. 
But, somehow, our Lookout pulls through with very few errors. The hard work 
was rewarded when the publication won third-pri/e placement in the Columbia 
National Press Association Contest.

Frontierettes of the Inter Nos 

1 he Inter Nos Club, under the direction of Miss HIizabeth V. L'pham, has had an active 
year. A Welcome Party for the freshmen began the 1948 season. At the next meeting the 
girls heard Miss Mildred L. Albert speak on "Grooming and Personality." In November 
the members attended a fashion show put on by the Boston School of Fashion and Design. 
An Inter Nos supper prepared by the girls themselves proved to be very interesting. 1 hey 
had as their speaker Mrs. Mary Tredinnick, who spoke on "Madonnas," an appropriate 
subject. The first square dance ever to be held in Wakefield High School was sponsored by 
the Inter Nos in January, 1949, at which the caller was Mr. Edgar Webber. He quickly 
showed the steps, and before the evening was over, everyone was swinging his partner around 
like old times. The Club also heard Mr. Hdward H. Oakes speak on "Gems and Jewelry" at 
the lebruary meeting. Mr. Oakes is a nationally known craftsman, whose fascinating work 
wins instant admiration. A Mothers' Tea was held in the spring. The last meeting was a 
beach party which furnished both fun and happy memories for the girls.

We Strike Gold! 



Friday, May 27, 1949 

Our claim is good ! Pay dirt was packed with gold today. Although the 
officials of the Senior W. H. S. Mining Company have put us through rigid tests 
of our abilities, we seem to be near our goal. The three newer companies look on 
enviously. 

Monday, May 30, 1949 

Our last day in the mine! We have cleared up all our odds and ends. Caps 
and gowns, to be worn by the Company members at future ceremonies, have 
arrived by pack train from Boston. Despite the heat, all day we have strutted 
around in our flowing robes, striking dramatic poses for Sias and his fellow camera 
enthusiasts 

Tuesday. May 31, 1949 

The Seniors spent the morning in blissfully slumbering, and the afternoon in 
leisurely watching the other three companies mine. This evening we attended a 
mammoth banquet to celebrate our successes. For the evening program a group 
from the Company reviewed our years together. In spite of the inevitable Fresh- 
man Company under foot, we allowed outsiders to hear our program. 

Friday, June 3, 1949 

In an impressive ceremon\' Superintendent of Mines Kinder ga\e each Senior 
his gold certificate. With it came adxice for future digging. Tomorrow we leave 
our old Pack Trail and head for the new FOllow-Through (Maim.

JOAN: Gee, 1 never thought I'd find mvself out here, so manv miles from Wake- 

field ! 
BEVERLY: Yes, these prospecting camps are mighty lonesome: but it'll be 

worth it if we strike a fortune. 
JOAN: The men have been out digging all day: I sure hope they come back with 

something besides a lame back! 
BEVERLY: Well, it's most time for them. We'd better hurr>' along with the 

suppei. 

( Whistle heard — Clementine) 
JOAN: Oh, here they are now. They sound happ\' so thev must ha\e found 

.something. 

(Boys enter, singing) 



JOHN 



Hello, gals. Is the grub ready? These little boys is mighty hungr\- 



JO.AN : Yes — but first we want to know what you got today. 

DICK: Well, pardners, we didn't find any treasure but we did find this! (Holds 
up Journal) 

BEVERLY: Well, what is it — someone's old love letters? 

JOAN: (taking it) Let's look at it — Oaah — say--it's got Eddie Cook, our class 
secretary's, name in it! How could it have got way out here??? 

JOHN: Well, he must have been prospecting around these parts, and lost it. 

DICK: We found it buried under some leaves and dirt. Well, Joan, what tioes 
the old boy say in it? 

JO.AN: (looking through it) Well — Oh, gee (excitedly) Sa-a-\! It's a diary 
of our school da\'s at old W. H. S. He must ha\e been carrving it around 
all this time. . . Listen — I'll read a few pages: 

(Reads:) In September of I94S three hundred eighteen members of the 
Freshmen Class entered the portals of Wakefield I ligh School, and a new mile- 
stone of life. As all previous freshmen, we soon became a part of and con- 
tributed in no small way to the confusion of high school life. 

DICK: Remember how the seniors made fun of us and kidded about our si/.e? 

JOHN: Well, we weren't all small! 

JOAN: (reading on) Rather bewildered by the maze of rooms, innumerable 
rules, the system of bells, and corridor jams, our class embarked upon its 
journey of higher education. After a few weeks we became accustomed to 
the routine of high school life, and tried hard to master our difficult programs. 
Some were too timid to join any kiml of social life: others participated in the 
Orchestra, Inter Nos Club, and the Glee Club. 

In November of 1945 Wakefield defeated their "old ri\al, " .Melrose, 7-() 
There were gay celebrations that night, with 800 in attendance at Canteen. 

BEVERLY: I ley, I remember that night. Everyone was certainl\- excited! 

JOHN: Gee, no wonder — It had been 23 years since we had defeated them! 

JOAN: (reading) In the spring of 1946 we were proud of our school's baseball 
team. We were Middlesex Champions. 

BEVERL^■: What a season that was! A crowd of u> went into lenwa\ E.uk 
and had loails of fun cheering the bo\s on. 

DICK: Did you see Joe Schwar/. double off the left-field wall' W hat .i lul' I 
got so excited I dropiH'd mv hot dog into a hulv's corsage ol roses' 

JOAN: (reading) .Although not manv of us were accjuainted with .Miss Clilmore, 
we were sorry to hear of her retirement as Dean. Miss I'li/abeth L ph:un look 
over her many responsibilities. 

All too soon we found ourselves at the close of our freshman war. and 
looking aheati to being upper classmen. ... I lere. John, you read lor a w hile. 

JOHN: Well, this tells about our sophomore >ear. (Reading) On September 6, 
1946, after ten weeks of vacation, we returned to school eager to use our titles 
as "sophomores," and with a friemlly contempt for freshmen. 

Page ( tiu' hiiiiilii'J six 



DICK: Yes — and with an exceptional collection of sunburns, tans, and freckles. 
The possession of the latter was most disturbing to the fairer sex of the other 
classes. 

JOHN: (reading) The Inter Nos Club started the tradition of "Freshman Day." 
All the freshmen girls had to wear their hair in pigtails and carry their books 
in baskets or pails. 

BHN ERL\': ^'es, I'll never forget that daw Their worst punishment was that 
the girls couldn't speak to the boys all dav. 

JOHN: (reading) Class Election was held on October 15, and Roy Lefavour was 
elected President. He was aided in his post by Jean Connolly as Vice-Presi- 
dent; Betty Hoepfner as Secretary; and Alice Redfearn as Treasurer. Also, 
about this time, .Mr. R. Edgar Fisher was made .Assistant Superintendent of 
Schools because of the illness of Mr. Atwell. ... On November 4. Melrose 
beat Wakefield, 13-0. 

D1(>K: ^■es, but don't forget, in spite of that defeat. Wakefield pla\ed "Heads 
up" ball all year, and displayed a fine brand of football. 

JOHN: (reading) On February 12, the whole school was saddened b\- the resig- 
nation of our principal, Mr. Peterson. On Februar\' 27, .Mr. Roland Kinder 
was appointed principal. 

JO.AN: ^■es. when Mr. Kinder was appointed to follow Mr. Peterson's footsteps, 
our spirits lifted as we knew that he was entirel\' capable of heading this group 
of future prospectors. 

JOHN: (reading) The School Committee was busv this \ear. The>' also ap- 
pointed .Mr. James Walsh as head coach of baseball and football; and Air. 
Lucian Colucci as head coach of basketball. 

DICK: And Pop Fulton was made submaster for the coming year. 

BEVERLY: Yes, we couldn't have a more understanding man to tell our excuses 
to. could we? 

DICK: Oh, going back to basketball — Roy Lcfa\our gained distinction again by 
piling up the greatest number of points for our team. 

JOHN: (reading) Mr. .\twell. who had been our Superintendent of Schools for 
\'ears, resigned on .April 18, because of illness. ... On .Ma\- 18. the Sopho- 
more Hop, our first dance, was a huge success. 

JO.AN: Remember all the colorful banners, stop signs, and posters. Thev ga\e 
it a true collegiate effect. 

JOHN: (reading) At last . . . the da\- we had anticipated all \ear long had ar- 
rived, and school was over for the summer. . . . Thus ended our Sophomore 
vear. Bev, why don't \ou read the next one. 

BF\'FRLY: O. K., pardner. (reading) In September, 1947, we entered our 
Junior year, feeling might\' proud of oursehes. At last we were upper class- 
men. \\'e took a more prominent part in high school acti\ities; and athletes 
from our class began to be outstanding. Roy Lefavour won the first \'arsit\' 
Club "player of the week" award, and Frank Fotino took the second one. In 
October, we chose the following officers: President, Roy Lefavour: \'ice-Pres- 
ident, Jean Connollv: Secretar\'. Betty Hoepfner: and Treasurer, .Mice Red- 
fearn. 

lOAN: 1 remember that we chose blue and gold for our colors — and —

BENERL^': On October 11, everybod\' turned out for the annual Cheerleaders' 
dance and had a grand time hopping around. In No\emher. for the second 
time while we were in high school, we had the thrill of beating our old-time 
rival, .Melrose, 6-0. 

JOHN: Bo\-, that was a shut-out, too! 

BEN'ERLV: (reading) On No\ember 22. our class had their .lunior Prom. We 
called it "The Stardust Prom" and decorated the g\m with stars and signs

jO.-\N: dee, I'll never forget that dance. It was really dream\'.

Roy Lefavour co-captains for the following season. 

JOHN: Naturally — "Mr. Short" and "Mr. Long" were both outstanding players. 

BEVERLY: On February 10, the inter Nos Club held an enjoyable Valentine 
Tea Dance. And the hockey team, after bringing their season to a close with
